CBH as the BCNTHWANC

The article is a must-read. To be honest, the thought of calling Coach Howland the "Best Coach Never To Have Won A National Championship" is not something that really had crossed my mind. I mean--he's only been at UCLA for 5 years. Usually guys with that title have been at it for a long time. Like Phil Mickelson in golf, or Kevin Garnett in the NBA. But I think what puts him on that list is that first word--"Best." He is such a GREAT coach, that despite the fact that he hasn't actually been at it for that long (on the Div I championship level at least) he merits consideration for that list. I see it as a positive thing. Basically it's this--he's such a great coach, that people EXPECT a championship w/ in 5 years. Which is of course a RIDICULOUS expectation--that of course he might achieve!

What does all this mean? Nothing really. He's a great coach and has no national championship, but of course we already knew that. And we're all hoping he'll be off that list in a few weeks here. Nevertheless, the article is worth a look, as it describes the intricacies of our great CBH (like the water bottle) and the path that brought him to the well, almost, top.

I am completely out of my mind right now w/ excitement for tomorrow's game. I know our Bruins are feeling confident and ready to show the nation that against a flying team with a funny mascot, we can still play our style of ball and come out w/ a win. GO BRUINS!
